For Mateusz as an extreme sports enthusiast and adventure seeker, it has all started with capturing skateboarders and BMX riders when he was 17. That’s when he has found his deep love for moving images. After making tons of short sports documentaries for several years, he decided to get further into filmmaking and decided to study cinematography at AFiT in Warsaw.
Shortly after, he moved to the UK and graduated from a BA cinematography course at Ravensbourne University in London. He worked on many short films, music videos, and documentaries which some were shown on widely recognized, international festivals and platforms like SXSW, New Orleans Film Festival, Rhode Island International Film Festival, Polish International Film Festival, PL MVA, Short Waves, Director’s Library, and also via Vimeo Staff Pick.
Mateusz got into MA National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield but decided to move back to his motherland. He’s now based in Warsaw and he is being represented by Papaya Films. He constantly progresses while working on various, challenging projects as a director of photography and also as a camera operator.
Openness, ambition, and hard work are Mateusz’s trademarks. His keen eye pays attention to every detail and skilfully documents the surrounding reality – or creates a new one within it.
